📄️ What is StarRocks?
StarRocks is a next-generation, blazing-fast massively parallel processing (MPP) database designed to make real-time analytics easy for enterprises. It is built to power sub-second queries at scale.
StarRocks has a simple architecture. The entire system consists of only two types of components, frontends (FEs), and backends (BEs) or compute nodes (CN). StarRocks does not rely on any external components, simplifying deployment and maintenance. Nodes can be horizontally scaled without service downtime. In addition, StarRocks has a replica mechanism for metadata and service data, which increases data reliability and efficiently prevents single points of failure (SPOFs).
StarRocks offers a rich set of features to deliver a blazing-fast, real-time analytics experience on data at scale.
